A GIRL LIKE HER: Sophomore year has been a nightmare for Jessica Burns. Relentlessly harassed by her former friend Avery Keller, Jessica doesn't know what she did to deserve the abuse from one of South Brookdale High's most popular and beautiful students. But when a shocking event changes both of their lives, a documentary film crew, a hidden digital camera, and the attention of a reeling community begin to reveal the powerful truth about "A Girl Like Her".
I'm a big fan of locally made films and theater. My daughter has been in theater productions for the last 3 years. She is playing Nana in Peter Pan Jr. this weekend. As a mom of a tween daughter, I can see the "mean girl" attitudes already starting in school and online. At one point this year a friend of my daughter's said she didn't want to be friends anymore. My daughter was heartbroken at that time, but they are friends again now. I hope this movie helps some girls to treat each other better.
